About

• • • •

When I was two, I drank a bunch of gasoline and almost died.

It's fair to say I Wasn't the best thinker back then. But I was inquisitive. You have to give me that. Anyways, I’m proud to announce that my brain is functioning at a much higher level these days. Now, instead of drinking 87-octane, I try to do more positive and enriching things. Backpacking, taking pictures, riding elephants, painting, jumping out of planes, teaching college, attending World Cups. Working the in-between times as an Designer/Art Director hybrid to fund the fun. So, I stay busy. But when I do have spare time, but not enough to get on a plane, I’m up for whatever. Soccer, golf, tennis, surfing, snowboarding or anything else. But I’m going outside. 

In short, this is what I have to offer. A brain that has been getting better and better for 30+ years. A bucket of experiences to stimulate said progressing brain. And a bunch of hobbies that help me relax and hang out with friends and family. Hopefully that gives you a little peek at who I am and what my life is like. If you think there’s some way I could help you out, feel free to give me a call or shoot me a note any time.
